MHI will supply its MWT 1.0 turbine to the Mountain View IV project near Palm Springs in the Coachella Valley. Delivery is set for the end of the year.
According to engineering documents available online, the MWT 1.0 turbine has been lined up since 2006.
The contract will come as a relief to MHI’s wind division, which has been immersed in its patent battle with GE. The dispute is over the MWT 2.4MW turbine. GE alleges the turbine incorporates its own copyrighted designs.
